I would prefer a beach for tanning purposes but any place I could lay out in peace would be fine. I'm willing to travel within the state, maybe even Oregon, though I'd prefer to stay on the west side of the state. When in Europe I felt safe enough to go alone (female) but I'm not sure I'd be comfortable doing that here. I'd probably take my husband with me. I would like someplace I'd feel safe going alone though since I know it's not his preference. Thank you!
